3-d objects


For each of the following problems, consider how you would pose the same problem to your students. Would the wording need to change? Would you need to include more pictures? More detailed pictures? But remember we don't want to do TOO MUCH for the student. If we provide too much information, they will not need to think about what the question is asking.

Consider your problem-solving strategy for each of the following investigations. Is there another strategy that you could use? If so, which strategy would be more appropriate for understanding the concept?
